Everyday, from 11am
Western Foyers

Tom Kuntz is the master mind behind music videos for The Avalanches' 'Frontier Psychiatrist' and adverts including Old Spice's 'Your Man Could Smell Like Me'. The quality and imagination behind each idea he puts in front of a lens classifies Mr Kuntz as a luminary of modern film. At Vivid Live 2011 his contribution will be no less ground breaking. Tom Kuntz will dress the western foyer of the Sydney Opera House with a video installation set to challenge each and every sense complete with his trademark sense of wit and innovation.
